Baltimore and Denver
Since these spots aired in 1968, I wonder how Baltimore's WJZ-TV channel 13 and Denver's channel 9 KBTV/KUSA aired instead of that spot for Raleigh/Belair Cigarettes?
Beginning on January 1st, 1968, cigarette ads were taken off of TV in Baltimore by choice of the then big 3 stations WJZ, WBAL and WMAR ( Baltimore radio followed suit in 1969 ).
The Denver stations ( KWGN, KOA/KCNC, KLZ/KMGH and KBTV/KUSA ) did the same I believe in March of 68. Not sure when the Denver radio stations like KOA or KIMN 95 banned cigarette ads
Kinda curious if ABC ran a special feed to those cities in place of that Belair/Raleigh ad or did WJZ/KBTV aired some local spot instead?
